The final blogpost for our Voices from the Early Days series features 50 years of feminist classrooms – Marta Kowalewska demonstrates how exactly did the feminist labour taken on by feminist academy translate to a transformation of university classrooms.
As part of our Voices from the Early Days series, Marta Kowalewska explores, with inputs from Radhika Govinda, the kind of labour often taken on by feminist academics in creating a thriving environment for students. Much of such labour took place within the neoliberal academy, which was a source of tension against feminist pedagogy.
For International Women’s Day 2021, genderED has co-organised and co-supported two events focusing on feminist classrooms and the role of women in HIV and LGBTQ+ activism. Feminist Classrooms: Past, Present and Future is co-organised with EUSA, the Student Union at the University of Edinburgh, while The Role of Women in HIV and LGBTQ+ Activism is organised by the Staff Pride Network, while supported by genderED and IASH.
